Amazon Kindle Fire HD (2013) Specs


So what changed about the Kindle Fire HD? Well, for starters the body has been overhauled completely – it's got a new industrial-looking design which has made it both thinner and lighter than before, not to mention that bezels have gone through a much needed trimming. The new slate also comes with a refreshed Fire OS 3.0, aka Mojito installed – Amazon's fork on Android – which comes preloaded with even more productivity apps and features. In case you're wondering, all Amazon tablets have their own separate Amazon app store, though apps written for Android work just fine. But, wait! That's not all – hardware has also gotten a slight bump. Namely, the 1GHz dual-core OMAP chipset by Texas Instruments has been replaced with a faster 1.5GHz dual-core one, though the exact make hasn't been revealed. The rest of the specs are pretty much identical to last year's – a 7-inch display running a resolution of 1280x800, the same dual stereo speakers and 1GB of RAM. These are hardly a match for the still minty-fresh 2013 Nexus 7, though considering that the 2013 Kindle Fire HD costs almost a $100 less, it does feel like Amazon will continue to reign supreme in the budget category.
